Mary Hilde Ruth Bauermeister (7 September 1934, Frankfurt am Main – 2 March 2023, Bergich Gladbach) was a German artist who worked in sculpture, drawing, installation, performance, and music. Her studio in Cologne from 1960 to 1962 is considered to be one of the birthplaces of the Fluxus movement. She held her first solo exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1962 and afterwards she moved to New York. Since 1972 she has been living and working in Germany. Her works are presented in many private and public collections including the MoMA, the Guggenheim and Whitney museums in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne.
